Windows 98 has a max of 64GB and windows 98SE 137GB. Basically.

The computer (motherboard/bios) will probably be your problem. Check at the motherboard manufacturer's website to see if there is a newer version of bios for you.

did you replace an old existing drive? Did you f-disk and partition it? two cent.
